1I have been drawing the Fish No Water series for over 20 years and the ideas surrounding it keep evolving.  Another series of drawings introduced here is the idea of cacti – with roots and flowers – suspended in the air. Images are drawn from rescued cactus – whether it’s saved from highway construction or from an eroding arroyo wall. Here is a sampling of images from 2011 to present. All of the originals were a commission or have been sold. For the last few years, I have been using Unison Soft Pastels on Wallis Sanded Pastel Paper. It is luxurious. Commissions are encouraged!
